Ivo Neame (piano), George Crowley (tenor saxophone), Tom Farmer (bass), Martin France (drums)
Pianist and composer Ivo Neame has now reached European star status with his work with piano trio Phronesis and with Norwegian superstar saxophonist Marius Neset. A considerable leap up from those Kentish Town Loop Collective sessions of a few years ago. Having heard his own Quartet at this year’s Swanage Festival, where he delighted a full church venue of typical elderly mainstream jazz fans with his innovative but beautifully melodic and accessible music, we are fortunate to be able to attract such a busy musician to the House. If you think new wave Euro jazz is all about ice-cold intellectualism, come and have your prejudice confounded. At some points George Crowley almost sounds like one of those classic Texas tenors; there are real jazz roots in this music.
